I would just use the cd command to go to the directory/folder you want to make a new folder in. Then use the mkdir or md command to make a new folder there. So you would use mkdir YOURNEWFOLDERNAME or md YOURNEWFOLDERNAME and it should make a folder in the place where you said in the cd command. For your second question you can use the cd command to locate the folder where the picture is. Then use this command to copy it to the new folder you made. copy "YOURFILE.JPG" "DIRECTORY/YOURFILE.JPG" Hope I helped

Hey thanks mate...
Say in this program i wanted it to make a folder called folder1 which goes to desktop and the folder in that on desktop and the stuff in the folder in folder1

Thats where i get lost.. is their a command so that it goes to desktop without having to have the Users\username\folder?

And also can you if possible give me an example of the cd and md? And again thankyou soo much man.

You can use the environment variable %userprofile%\Desktop, but that requires the CD command

CD %UserProfile%\Desktop
MKDIR "Folder 1"
CD "Folder 1"
MKDIR "Folder 2"
COPY "P:\ath\hi.jpg" "%UserProfile%\Desktop\Folder 1\Folder 2"

E:\>md /?
Creates a directory.

MKDIR [drive:]path
MD [drive:]path

If Command Extensions are enabled MKDIR changes as follows:

MKDIR creates any intermediate directories in the path, if needed.
For example, assume \a does not exist then:

    mkdir \a\b\c\d

is the same as:

    mkdir \a
    chdir \a
    mkdir b
    chdir b
    mkdir c
    chdir c
    mkdir d

which is what you would have to type if extensions were disabled.
